Britain Warned To Brace Itself For Bitter Winds

Recommended Posts

The entire country should brace itself for cold, windy conditions and temperatures as low as minus 4C, as the cold snap on its way begins to grip Britain.

Parts of Scotland have already been hit by a heavy frost and snow, with around two inches falling last night, and temperatures dropping to minus 5C in the Highlands.

Now, forecasters predict the weather system that brought on the early snowfall will move south overnight.

It is thought the wintry turn could be the start of a bitter two-week cold snap.

Meteogroup forecaster Ben Windsor said clear skies in the South East this evening will make it particularly susceptible to cold weather, with temperatures expected to dip as low as minus 4C.

Mr Windsor said the entire country would also experience windy conditions into tonight and tomorrow, but particularly western Scotland and Cornwall.

Later in the week, Manchester will be the coldest city where the mercury is tipped to fall to minus 2C on Friday and minus 3C on Saturday.

Gritters have been out in the north of England in anticipation of the cold snap, and a pcb board Met Office yellow weather warning was in place across the north west and north Wales for icy roads and hazardous conditions today.

That warning for wind and ice will remain in place tomorrow across Scotland, the north west and north east of England, as well as Yorkshire and Humber.

Cold conditions will continue in Scotland, but the worst of it will be in the northern areas and mountains, meaning people are unlikely to be affected.
